Mixture rate for Trimec and 2 - 4 - D?

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the rough estimate mixture rates for 2 4 D and Trimec? I use a pull behind 15 gallon sprayer. This will be for a big wide open lawn area about 3 acres. Thanks!

Do you know how far you can spray with your 15 gallon sprayer?

8 ounces per gallon seems like alot. The broadleaf i use, when using a backpack sprayer for spot spraying, I use 1oz. herbicide/gallon of water.

I would suggest filling your sprayer up with water, drive around your lawn and spray the water out to get an idea of square footage that you can cover with a full tank.

After you figure out how many square feet you spray, check the label and add the amount needed.

Example...I cover 1 acre with my 24 gallon broadcast sprayer (43,560 ft2). The product I use says to apply at 1.1 to 1.6 oz/1000ft2, I apply at 1.1 oz/1000ft2 so I use 48 ounces of hebicide in my sprayer.

Hope this helps.

The variables are huge depending on the tips and pressures you are running on your sprayer. Always follow the lable directions first of all. Most 2-4-D Products are 1.5- 2 oz per gallon. I spray 200 gallons with 2.5 gallons of material and get 7 acres of coverage. I run at 4.5 mph 15psi using tjet stainless steel tips. Your sprayer manual should be able to tell you the coverages and tip size your sprayer has. Then you need to factor in the mixture rates for the product you're using to calibrate your sprayer.

Hotrod and Moose are dead on.

Just for another example, I use 56 oz of chemical in 12 gallons of water, but I cover 52k sq ft. Basically running at about 1 oz per 1000 sq ft by the time you count for overlap.

It's not how many gallons you're using, but how many sq ft you're covering with the gallons used.

Wish I had a $ for every time I misspoke or looked at the wrong part of a chemical label over the past 27 years and that's part of my profession! That's about the same 2,4-D concentration I used in my old pull type squeeze pump sprayer which worked great on dandelions in the lawn. In the new sprayer on the 4 wheeler I run about 16 oz. - 32 oz per 15 gals. of water, depending on what I'm trying to kill. It runs 15 gal./acre at 5 mph with the nozzles I have in it now so it keeps the farmer math simple.

Happy Birthday Boilerguy! Always enjoy your posts.

    • My WorkSharp arrived last week and I have been very impressed with how quick and easy it is to use and how nice it is to once again have kitchen knives that can cut 1/16-1/8 inch tomato slices with ease.

      Of course you do, because he didn't get the nomination. If he would have been the R nominee he would be the greatest thing since tin foil.

      Wrong.

      What if Hillary had an R behind her name? Who would YOU vote for?

      I actually wanted Ted but I considered him Lying Ted because of his agreement to support the nomination and he didn't until now.  Switching things around I would be voting Trump with a D behind his name then.  You are the crowd-follower who would be voting for any candidate with the L behind his name including Hillary.

      Glad we agree you are supporting Hillary and will own everything she does if she wins.

      Looks to me like you are the one with the tinfoil hat if those are your most important issues.

      Immigration,  - This issue IS about race, and only about race. No one is proposing solutions to keep out the white Europeans or Canadians. All you want to keep out is the rapist Mexicans. I have been asking for months but not one Trump supporter has offered a serious commentary on why we should be so worried about Mexican immigrants and why a wall is the only or best solution. 

      Supreme Court justices, - Yes we will have a few more liberal leaning Supreme Court Justices. What will that mean to us average citizens? Probably not much. I don't care if Trump wins the next 2 elections, Roe vs. Wade is probably not going to be overturned.

      energy independence, - In a capitalistic society, I'm not sure why this would be one of your top 4 issues especially since you claim to be a "conservative" but spending and the deficit is no where to be found on this list. The average Joe won't be affected much by this either.

      gun control - Yeah, Obama was going to take away my guns too. He had 8 years to do it and guess what? My gun cabinet has more guns in it than it did 8 years ago. I am against any more gun control measures but I'll take my chance with that rather than risk nuclear holocaust with Donald Trump.

      BTW, Gary Johnson would be your solution on 3 of those 4 issues you seem to think are the most important. 

      Gary Johnson is not the solution to any of those issues has he has zero chance of winning.  Get your tin foil hat ready for the nuclear holocaust.  By the way who said spending and the deficit isn't on the list as I said I just named a few?  So as usual in your elitist way of thinking you are wrong again.

    • All I know is that the local gun shop was packed today and I was told that I would probably have to wait until after the election to have any chance of finding what I'm looking for.

      Sheesh people........haven't you already buried enough guns in the backyard over the last 8 years?

      :)

    • Sounds awesome Jim, you still running the smoker box piped to the smoker? That's one heck of a set up if I remember right!

    • I hear ya. Just stuck a batch of venison summer sausage in the smoker and that will go till late tonight. Then I have a pork tenderloin that is all rubbed and sitting in the fridge waiting it's turn in the smoker for tomorrow. 
    • Lake mary is known in the summer for northern and walleyes.  Some of the lakes around Phoenix have some big slabs and also stripper which will start to run soon.  The northern and walleyes are catch and release or kill and take immediately as they are non native and eat the trout.  
    • OK, but attsa still a lot of sausage...
    • Some will be gifted and some for get to gathers with friends and family. One of my favorites when out on the hardwater.
    • Hearing some outstanding reports. Bud was on a big rice lake and had thousands of birds on it. Most all of my buds that know what they're doing are reporting limits. Sounds like one of the best openers in years
